Keynote Speaker(s):



Governor Gary R. Herbert has led Utah’s recovery from the Great Recession to a position of national economic prominence. His focus on economic development includes attracting businesses and investment to the state while helping homegrown businesses flourish.

The Governor is focused on four cornerstones to strengthen Utah’s economy: education, jobs, energy and self-determination. As a result, Utah has become a premier destination for business, jobs, and an unsurpassed quality of life.

As Utah’s 17th Governor, he took the Oath of Office on August 11, 2009. Prior to becoming the states’ chief executive, Governor Herbert served as Lieutenant Governor for five years and a Utah County Commissioner for 14 years. Governor Herbert and his wife, Jeanette, are the proud parents of six children and 16 grandchildren.




Terry Cross (adult session keynote): Terry (Ha-ne-ga-noh), an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation, received his master’s degree in social work from Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. He is the founding executive director of NICWA, now serving as senior advisor. He is the author of Positive Indian Parentingand co-authored Towards a Culturally Competent System of Care, published by Georgetown University. He has 40 years of experience in child welfare, including 10 years direct practice.
